Natalia Gordienko is currently filming the music video for her Eurovision 2021 entry in the Ukrainian captial of Kyiv.
Natalia Gordienko was officially confirmed by TRM yesterday to be Moldova’s representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam. Natalia will be working with Philipp Kirkorov and Dimitris Kontopolous, also known as “The Dream Team”. The director of the music video will be Forkas Evangelinos.
Natalia was originally selected to represent Moldova at Eurovision 2020 with the song “Prison”. This year, the song will sound a bit different, as it will be a more “dance” song, similar to Maruv’s song “Siren Song”, the winning song of Vidbir 2019, which also would have been Ukraine’s song at Eurovision in Tel Aviv.
The video clip is expected to come out on March 8th.
